A Day Turned Upside Down

Katie didn't want to go to bed last night, so we told her to go ahead and stay downstairs and watch TV if that was what she wanted to do. She claims that she spent the whole night awake.

We then proceeded to demonstrate that staying up all night was its own punishment, as we told her that she could not go to bed at 10 AM; instead, she needed to come out to lunch with us. The sulk was tremendous.

I think she caught a nap after lunch while I went to the park to play Ingress. I ran up 100K AP and made it to level 7. Level 8 will be much harder to reach. :) It was warm and humid enough that I was really pretty much ready to sit for a while when I got home. This worked well, as it gave daisy_knotwise a chance to go out and do some shopping that she wanted to do while I drank a lot to rehydrate.

(The good news is that I've walked over 50 km this month playing Ingress, which is a good 50 km more than I would have been likely to have walked otherwise.)

When Gretchen got home, I suggested that we go to the pool to cool off and so we did. A good time was had by all, although getting the girls to leave was a bit of a challenge...

And now the girls have gone to bed.

Katie is out like a light. :)

Ghost

Oh, yeah. Remember the dealer decal that I pulled off of my car? I took a bottle of Windex out to make an assault on the remaining goo this morning while waiting for Katie to pull herself together so we could go get lunch.

A lot of elbow grease removed the goo.

And visible in very faint lettering is the name of the dealership from where it appears that differential amounts of sunlight over the years has affected the paint. It's really sort of fascinating.

Maybe it will come out in the wash.
